The power of plants.

This potent plant-based formula is biodegradable and septic tank friendly PLUS it busts grease and bashes burnt on bits, even in cold water

Yes, it’s cruelty-free and of course it’s vegan (we don’t use animal ingredients) but what’s great to know is it delivers spotless pots and dazzling dishes to match the big brands… just without the nasties. Great for plates and better for the planet.

Get scrubbing!

A heady aroma of pink grapefruit makes washing up a joy ;)

Just place the pink silicone grip around the recessed section of your bottle. Remove the screw cap and screw on the pump (keep the cap for when you return your empties). You can unlock the pump by turning through 90° while pushing down slightly. And you are good to go!

Just 2-3 pumps per sink-load gives gleaming glasses, clean cups and perfect plates. Each 500ml bottle contains up to 125 doses which means your 4-pack should last around 4 months with 500 sink loads! 

PLUS there’s no danger of overdosing (unlike the big brands). That’s the beauty of a bottle with a pump! You’ll never waste detergent or £££s down the plughole.


Return for REFILL.

We don’t believe in Fairy (washing up liquid). We don’t, we don’t.

Because Proctor and Gamble are one of the top 10 global plastic polluters in the world.

So we wanted our washing up liquid to make a difference. We use 100% recycled plastic to create our bottles BUT you can also return your empties to us for refill for FREE! Click here to find out how.

Recycling is of course one tool to tackle plastic pollution… however, recycling needs materials to be collected, moved around, melted and reformed - which all uses energy (usually made by burning fossil fuels). So recycling does create a level of carbon pollution (albeit better than making new virgin plastic).

But here’s the most frustrating thing: most plastic in the UK (and the world) isn’t recycled in the first place. 80% has been sent to landfill or ended up in our environment.* So it's pretty clear we can’t recycle our way out of the plastics crisis

Stay in the loop. Order your free returns label here.

Once you have at least 4 empties ready just pop them in the box they arrived in or in any box up to 50 x 50 x 60 cm and take it to your local Collect plus drop off point. This could be your local post office, newsagents, garage or corner shop. There are thousands nationwide (all is explained on our online returns portal). Once they’re safely back with us they can be cleaned and refilled ready to bring more joy to another sink load of dirty dishes.

It’s estimated that refilling and reusing a plastic bottle each time means our customer saves 41.4 grams of carbon dioxide.** Over the course of a year, two years, five years… you can see how the savings add up when you refill your bottle and don’t buy new. Let’s keep those bottles working and keep them out of landfill.

Of course you can still recycle your empties if you prefer but why not join the circular economy and keep those bottles in work!

Want to wash up wisely?

If you’ve got your smol washing up liquid then you’re off to a perfect start...

  1. Fill a bowl (or half of a split sink) with hot soapy water.

  2. Fill a second bowl (or half-sink) with clean hot water without any soap.

  3. Soak your dishes in the hot soapy water to loosen any debris. You’ll use less water and energy when the time comes to scrub them. 

  4. Don’t hold them under a constantly running tap.

  5. Use the second bowl of clean hot water for rinsing.

  6. Leave items to air dry or use a tea-towel that can be washed and reused.

This method has been shown to reduce the costs as well as the energy and water consumption involved with washing up by hand which is good to know especially for those of use without a dishwasher or those of us who will not fill one on a regular basis. 

Happy scrubbing!
